Sunday July 25 - HOT-HOT-HOT

it is sooo hot out today I am doing all I can to stay in and not have to go out there. I need to be in my craft room but here I am sitting on computer lol. Guess I need to move computer into craft room and then maybe I could get something done ha ha (nah I doubt it).
The countdown is moving closer to the A Primitive Journey Gathering in Berlin OH, and I am so excited. I am staying with a girl I have know only online but we are such good friends, I can't wait, she lives just outside of where all the other gals are staying and we are gonna drive over together and shop with them all day, then hang out at her place Sunday til I have to start back home. I am so excited, gonna meet ladies I have talked to for years, and never dreamed of meeting in person and hanging with them and shopping in the Amish Community, ahhhh a dream come true for me.
I can't wait!!!!!

Well I hope your day is blessed and that you stay cool and relax on the Sunday in July.

Be Blessed

So Its Tuesday July 20th

i am sorry it has been so long since my last post, been wrapped up in quite a few things and just really haven't made time for my blog, so its my fault.
I still haven't take any pics from my thrifting either, sheeeshhh Angie get with it.

I hope you are all having a good day, and doing better at organizing your time lol

I am going to be going to the A Primitive Journey Community Gathering in Berlin, OH the first weekend in August, and I am so excited. I will finally get to meet so many ladies I have only talked to online. And I get to stay with a girl that is one of best online buddies ever. Still working on if I will be spending night at the motel with the rest of the group or going back to my buddies house after our day of shopping. If I stay with her, more money to spend hehehehe

I am also working on a Greensboro Chapter of the A Primitive Journey Community. We will meet once a month and either craft together or thrift/antique/shop together. I think it will be really neat and if you are local to the Greensboro area, let me know and I can point you in the right direction to get signed up. Our first meeting will be August 21st, still working on details of what time and where.

you can email me at or post here if you are interested in joining in.

well time to get back to work, ttyl

A Primitive Journey

ever been to the A Primitive Journey Community? if not u need to go, it is awesome collaboration of like mind crafters and craft lovers for the Primitives we all love. Diane (the director of this community) has come up with an awesome idea. Have you ever thought it would be great to meet up with fellow prim lovers and spend a day either visiting local prim shoppes or thrifting or even sitting around doing a project together? Well that was her idea and she has come up with a new idea. She has gone about setting up Chapters of like mind prim lovers in several different area's largest cities and they will meet once a month on the 3rd Saturday of each month, and have a great time together.
I know for me there are not many ppl that like the primitive look like I do in my city, but there are a couple of gals within a 1-2 hr drive, and I can't wait to get to meet them in person and spend 1 day once a month and have a day of laughs and primitive craft memories to share together.
Who can say they have enough friends? and who of us wouldn't like to hang out with another person or group of ppl that we can share our love of primitives with?
I am so excited and I can't wait til August 21st, the first meeting.

I have signed up to be the local Greensboro, NC director for this chapter. if you are local and Greensboro isn't too far for you to drive, come on and join the group. you have to join the community first and then once accepted you will be signed up for your local chapter.

check it out

Happy Sunday

I hope all have a great Sunday, and relax, refresh and reinvigorate yourself for the week ahead. I still have my son here, but he goes back to his Dad's this afternoon, so we are having brunch right now (French toast, sausage and fresh cantaloupe) and then we will get ready and go to see my Mom after she gets out of church.

I will be back home later, and hope to get in craft room and gets started on some things. Been out of it all weekend, due to son being here and trying to spend some quality time with him.

if you haven't heard of A Primitive Journey Community, go check it out, it is a awesome place and they are setting up local chapters throughout the US and Canada , so that we can have a get together of like prim minds once a month and either go shopping or do some crafting, so many things we can do, and who ever has enough friends? especially ones that love the prim crafting.

Saturday, what to get into today?

Good Morning,
Hope everyone is doing well, and has great plans for the weekend. I got a surprise yesterday, my 16yr old son that stays so busy and doesn't have time to see me much, is here for the weekend. I am so happy to get to spend sometime with him, however that does mean no crafting for me lol. Don't want to waste what little time I have been blessed with , he hasn't been here since Christmas.
on another note, I am totally excited I am signed up to go to a Primitive Gathering in Berlin, OH on the weekend of August 6-8. I have always wanted to go to a gathering but there was always something that came up, however not this time. I am going and it is Amish Country and we are staying there overnight and doing some shopping .... I can't wait, starting my savings right now for my trip.

happy happy happy.....

ok the boys are still sleeping (hubby, son, and puppy) so I am gonna get a few things done around the house, so that the rest of the day I can spend with my guys.

Be Blessed

Wednesday, July 7, 2010


well lets begin with the fact I am home today from work, my 4 legged baby, Buford T (our 1 yr old Bassett Hound) got neutered yesterday and I didn't want to leave him home alone in case he reinjured his sutures or if something happened. So I took the day off.
now what to do.... I really should get in to my craft room and do some cleaning and rearranging to get myself ready to get started on my Christmas crafts. So far though, I haven't made it past the computer, lol.
I have been messing around on Facebook, and looking for some new patterns as well. But now I must get my butt in gear and do something productive.

hope you are having a blessed day, it is very hot here today to be over 100 degrees so staying inside as much as possible.

take care and talk soon.

A New Beginning

We are just home from PA and the Ford City Heritage Days Festival over the 4th of July. It was a great time visiting family as well as selling our crafts. We had several people enquire into our online site, (which we had closed due to no interest) so starting today we have reopened it and we will be updating it over the next few days to get it back on track. the site will be . We will also be starting to rebuild stock for a few other shows we have going on in the next several months, as well as for next year's show again.

Any free patterns you know of please send info my way, need new ideas.
